On "Ecdysis" by Nicole Cipri (3294 words) ***

I'm reminded of some Paul Bowles stories wherein people transform into animals. Cipri's piece deals with this on a metaphorical level, much like Kafka's "Metamorphosis" does. Here, an abused girl tries to save her cat from a swarm of locusts, but her foster dad is having none of that. Read the story here at Unlikely Story.
